    There can only be a comment here: vi rocks!
    It's also flame bait, but this is just a coincidence!

        The only true editor is ed actually.

          Sometime, someday...

          text editors will provide full multitask processing.

          What about emacs? Oh no, multithreading is evil for elisp!

          Despite of that, an entire web browser just to run a text editor seems more reliable.

          What a crazy world!

            I still remember the editor that came with MSDOS, probably one of the best I've ever used.

              Looks as if vim and neovim will merge later.

                The one from MSDOS 5.0 and later is quite slick and dead simple like nano is, but the old DOS edlin is as old school as you can get

                  From what I heard they won't. Neovim can't be summarized as a Vim fork with asynchronous processing support.
                  They drastically modified the source code of Vim, with huge chunks of code which have been rewritten or cast away (the source code of Neovim is now ~30% smaller than that of the original Vim) and they are planning to do more.

                    To me it actually looked like the two projects are diverging because the project leaders disagree on fundamental design issues:

                    https://groups.google.com/forum/#!ms...c/XZEXxaxDDQAJ

                    I'd be really happy to see evidence of collaboration.
